well if this is real labor its been going on around 24 hours now. Not getting better and verrrrrrrry slowly getting worse.

To the point that its REALLY uncomfortable right now, but its still not fullblown labor. UGH UGH UGH UGH UGH.

Hang in there, Mae. Is your midwife ready to come? What did she say about it? Is there anything you need?

Go Mae Go!

After finding out there is a 3 week wait to get in at Womack, I've decided to go with a civilian provider out here in Fort Bragg. Any of you fabulous mamas have any suggestions of awesome OB's to go to in the Fayetteville area? Please PM me Thanks, mamas

Thankfully, we're hopefully going to be PCS'ing to Lewis around Christmas, and I can finish up with my previous OB who was AWESOME!

both midwives are on standby... have been since around this time yesterday.

things are definitely still progressing but at a snail speed. currently FINALLY getting some pressure down below during contractions. Hoping thats a good sign. If this keeps up Im going to be calling them soon.

I'll be thinking of you, Mae, and sending faster labor vibes your way!

AFM - had an attitude adjustment yesterday in the form of my 4yr old DS requesting to plant new flowers in the front yard to get ready for Daddy. So, a trip to Lowes (10% military discount BTW!) and a little manual labor later, we have some lovely new asters and daisies in our flower beds. The sunshine helped as well. Thanks everyone for the hugs and the pep talks. I think we can power through until DH comes home.

Today... I am thankful.

That my husband was smart enough to not buy a bunch of perishables when he went grocery shopping last night (just in case...) Worst comes to worst I have to eat my entire carton of ice cream in one night, lest it melt. Not gonna break my heart!

Of course, I'm hoping for the best, the storm blows east early and never even grazes us... but I live less than 4 miles (straight) from the outer banks.

I was thankful that my midwives appointment was today and not tomorrow, but they are at a birth today (so I'm jealous... lol) and I hope they don't schedule it for tomorrow!

Take care, and batten down the hatches, Mae! However, I secretly think it would be cool to give birth during a hurricane .

I dunno, Mae, at least you've got great odds of having that baby by Friday morning!

Tabitha, playing the dirt is also good for mood. It's the microbes or something, and it really does work! I'm glad you're feeling better!

Babies do seem to like to come during adverse weather conditions. Must have something to do with atmospheric pressure.

All the research Ive done says pretty much that. A large change in barometric pressure is usually accompanied by an increase of spontaneous labor within 24 hours.

Women at highest risk of being thrown into labor are those who are within 2 weeks of their due dates (I will be 38w2d tomorrow, with baby #3 no less!) and those that are high risk.

Im heading out to go rearrange our garage so DH can pull his car in tonight.

Probably a bad idea on my part but I am either nesting or this hurricane potential has me seriously on edge!

To all the Air Force wives out there, are overseas assignments supposed to be coming out today? Has anyone heard anything? I'm getting impatient and just thought I'd see.
